Valentine tag.

Hi peeps!

Hope you all had a wonderful valentines day. I however did not. Both i and my hubby was working the late night shift so we just`ll have to do a mini valentines in the weekend. I`m a busdriver and driving downtown i could see all the well dressed couples...the man with the flower in one hand and his girl in the other....oh i`m a hopeless romantic, it`s soooo nice to see all the love.

Anyway....in regard of valentines i have created a little tag.  


I have used mainly Prima products on this one. All papers are from the Rossibelle collection. 

I took a craft tag and cut out my papers to size. I then layered the smaller papers with a chipboard piece to get a more dimension. I enhanced the hole with a reinforcer from the Prima planner line by Frank Garcia. I think they are so gorgeous and glittery, lol. Looove all glittery stuff. I then fussy cut a heart. I used a stencil with glue to get a little bit of pattern and then used some foil to get the chiny effect you can se on the pic below. I just love how it turned out. 


I also fuzzy cut the sentiment from one of the papers and adhered it under the frame, which i made using paper clay. Next i put some cheesecloth in between the layers and embellished with a ribbon and flowers from Prima and WOC. 


For the finishing touches i added some bling, liquid pearls and a dragonfly, also made of paper clay. The frame and dragonfly got a little coat of Acrylic paint from Finnabair Opal Magic line. I used the Rose/gold one, Love the subtile shimmery look and how it makes the detail come forth a bit.

Happy birthday

Hi everyone!

I created a birthday card for a friend of mine recently. I`ve been inspired by Yasmin Tölche and her lots of layers kind of style. So i created a shabby chic, layered card. I tried to use some of my scraps for this one. I`m sorry to say i don`t have any more closeups as it all went so fast that i only managed to take this one pic of the card. Not a very good one though but it`ll have to do. I think this must be the fastest card i ever made. Only used an hour and 10 mins. And it has to be a record, lol. Still i was quite pleased how it turned out. And most importantly...Hilde loved it as well. Mission accomplished, lol.


Thanks for stopping by.

Colourful and simple

Hi everyone!

Today i`ve been home with a massive headache. It felt like my head was going to explode. But now i`m starting to feel a bit better. So here i`m sitting all alone in the darkness, thinking i have some blogging of old stuff to do, lol. Well i`m not the fastest to blog my creations but i hope you`ll bare with me anyway.

Last year i attended a crop with Irit Landgraf as one of the teachers. Amazing lady. So soft and delicate in her presence. I emediately took a liking to her.

With that said, i want to show you the two layouts i created during her class. They are not exactly my "style" but i really like how they turned out. And it made me want to try out this style some more. Hope you like them.


All papers and embellishments are from The Hip Kit Club which is one of the design teams Irit is a part of. I love the combination of colours and design of the papers. 


.I just adore this pic of my youngest daughter. The photographer really caught the essence of her. She allways has a smile ready for anyone. She is strong minded and also know how to charm anyone, lol. I`m afraid she`s gonna become a heartbreaker when she grows up, lol. This pic is about 5-6 years old.


Irit also explained the prosess of blending the colours without mucking them up. And i really like how they acted on the paper. We used watercolour paper as a backround using distress inks to blend.


This next LO is showing how you can use your scraps and still manage to create something great with them. This one is quite simple but i think i pulled it off. 


This pic was taken for her first day at school. And it is about 2 and a half years old. You can see she still has that lovely smile. My little baby sweetheart is growing older so fast. 

Thanks for joining me today. See you soon.

Vintage mixed media canvas

Hi everyone!

Is anyone starting to get in some Christmas mood? Well i`m not! So i`ll just have to work on it, lol. In the meanwhile i have worked on something else. I got commisioned a vintage canvas and that`s what i`m going to show you.


The size canvas is about 6x8"...ish.
I started with priming the canvas with gesso. Next i used some modelling paste and stencils to make some extra texture. I started gluing down my embellishments when the paste had dried. I used a chipboard frame from Blue fern studios and a leaf branch from Dusty attic.


The image is from Ppinkydolls and is coloured with ProMarkers.


I have used flowers from Prima mainly but also some few others. Several metal work pieces and some lace. It all were thoroughly covered with gesso before i sprayed the whole thing with several colours of sprays from Lindy`s Stamp Gang.


I finished it of with some gems and some liquid pearls.


Look at the gorgeous sparkle of the flower. It was coated in a generous layer of Stickles stardust. Looove how it turned out.


Hope you like my new project. Thanks for stopping by today!
I allways appreciate some love, hint, hint, wink, wink, lol.
See you soon.

Altered wooden box

Hi there everyone!

Hope you are all having a great day. The winter has finally arrived here in Trondheim....brrrrr. It`s cold but it looks so much britghter and cleaner outside now. So much better than the pooring rain. But, it won`t stay for long. The first snow never does.

Today i want to show you a wooden box i altered as a present to my eldest daughter.
In the top of this box is a small canvas which i primed with white gesso and decoupaged the image onto. 


Next i adhered all my chosen embellishments and gessoed it all.


On the sides i used some different stencils and put on some texture paste blended with sand to get this rough look on them.


Before i glued the canvas to the box, i sprayed it several times with sprays from Lindy`s Stamp Gang. And i just love how it turned out. 



Just look at all this yummy gorgeous shimmer. Looove it!



That`s it for today. Thanks for visiting me and hope to see you soon back again.
